Edit Feeder ID Group Settings Dialog Box

The Edit Feeder ID Group Settings dialog box is used to set options for the feeder schedule. It is also used to set options for feeder ID blocks when they appear on the one-line diagram.

  •  ☐ Include "Sizing Option" in schedule note Inserts a note displaying the feeder sizing method, which will appear below the schedule when inserted on the drawing. See the Wire Sizing section for more information.

  •  Schedule Notes: A note that will appear below the schedule when inserted on the drawing.

  •  ☐ Maximum Schedule Height: Whether the schedule has a maximum height. This height corresponds to inches on the printed page.

    If this is not checked, the schedule will be in a single schedule.

    If this is checked, you can specify the maximum height of the schedule. When the schedule exceeds this height, it will be continued in a second schedule next to the first. The label of the second schedule will have the Schedule title continued label option added to it to indicate that it is a continuation of the first schedule. See the Schedules options section for more information.

  •   Press this button to specify the ☐ Maximum Schedule Height on the drawing. The dialog box will be closed and you will be prompted to specify the height.

  •  ☐ Zoom to Schedule After Insertion Whether the display will be moved to the schedule location after it has been inserted or updated. Check this box if you are having difficulty locating your schedule on a busy drawing.

  •  ☐ Show Unused Feeder IDs Whether feeder IDs in the schedule for which the corresponding feeder callout is not in use will be displayed in the schedule.

  •  ☐ Block Can Rotate Whether feeder ID blocks rotate when placed on feeders, depending upon the insertion point along the feeder.
